Santa’s Delivery!

Hope you have started your weekend off swimmingly! I’m here today to share some more fun from  Honey Bee Stamps. I’m sharing a gift card holder! I don’t know about you, but I need to make a bunch of these. And truthfully, they are QUICK to make with Honey Bee’s Stocking Gift Card Holder HERE.

You just die cut all the pieces once and the stocking piece twice (for front and back) and then assemble. You then slide the gift card right in! Too fun and super easy!

The sentiment is from the set Santa Express HERE (such fantastically fun sentiments for gift tags, etc.) and the patterned paper ( ❤ !) is from Holiday Traditions HERE 6 x 6 pad.  🙂

This is just a fun way to add a little something special to those gift card gifts!

I added some stitching to give it a little more handmade touch and boom, done! 🙂

Be sure to check out the Honey Bee Stamps blog HERE. 🙂


Here’s a recap of all the new Honey Bee goodies I used and links to each below:

Simon Says Stamp: Love You More!

There is a New Release available over at Simon Says Stamp HERE–This release is called: Love You More! I used the new Wedding Rings dies HERE! Perfect for a wedding card, engagement or an anniversary celebration!! Or you can even use these in fun alternate ways! 😉

I cut all these strips and then weaved them through the die cut SSS Wedding Rings. This sentiment is a great one from the Paper Smooches set: New Beginnings 2. I added some score lines and stitching to polish it all off! 🙂

I thought this turned out quite sweet and really, it was pretty quick and simple to make overall.

A quick recap:
